Let’s Talk About: People-Pleasing Anxiety

I always thought of myself as someone who ‘didn’t care what people think’ (yes, yes, cliché, I know). In reality, everyone cares what people think in one way or another. But because I don’t really care what people think of my clothes or my crazy, tangled bed-head, and I don’t care when I leave the house without make-up, or when servers still literally offer me a child’s menu on a regular basis on restaurants, I thought I was ‘immune’ to caring.  Continue reading “Let’s Talk About: People-Pleasing Anxiety”

Happy Five Years, I’m Fine, Stop Asking!

happy (1)

My 5 year WordPress anniversary is today. I thought it was May 23rd (which is also my wedding anniversary and inspired this post last year) because I received the ‘happy anniversary’ notification late last year, but it is actually the 21st (Whatever, close enough to still make my previous post relevant!) So, happy five year anniversary, I’m Fine, Stop Asking!  Continue reading “Happy Five Years, I’m Fine, Stop Asking!”

So, I promised I would blog once a week and have mostly been true to my word, more or less. This week I’ve really struggled with what to blog about. Partially because I have been hit with a bit of writer’s block, and partially because I’ve actually been …okay.  Continue reading “Nothing To Say; I’ve Been Okay”

Read Part One Here!

So, we have been living in our new house for almost exactly one month now! And it has been a busy one month. We have three months to complete scheduled renovations that are covered by a program we opted into, so our timeline is quite…small. Though we have done a lot of work inside (basement renovations in progress, installed a new furnace & new electrical panel, added in new floors, and more) one of my personal favourite projects is the backyard reno.  Continue reading “Home Renovations: Two Broke Millennials Edition (Part 2)”

The Rash: Dealing With Two Weeks Of Panic

THE RASH

Three weeks ago, we moved into our new home. Overall, the process was surprisingly easy for me. I usually hate change – even good change, but this was a much-needed change, and I embraced it the best I could. I already feel like my home is, well, home. I’ve adjusted far better than I thought I would, and yet, here we are. Two weeks of panic. All because of a rash.  Continue reading “The Rash: Dealing With Two Weeks Of Panic”

Home Renovations: Two Broke Millennials Edition (Part 1)

Home Renovations

Hey everyone! I have been a bit AWOL lately, but I think I have a pretty good excuse this time – Jefferson and I are finally homeowners! We officially owned our home on Wednesday and have been travelling across the city almost every single day since then to work on our first set of renovations. Since I promised in one of my Two Broke Millennials Go House Hunting posts that I would keep you updated on our future renovations…here we go!
